bring call of duty back!
Let me preface this post with a little bit about my gaming history. First, let's start with the phrase, 'gaming'. Up until about 8 years ago, the word 'gaming' meant dice, maps and dungeons and dragons to me. I had spent some of my youth playing video games: Star Wars, Donkey Kong, Galaga, Smurfs, The Legend of Zelda and the almighty Super Mario Bros. Then I kind of got out of it for awhile. In college, I got a Sega CD and started playing again, but very little and usually N.H.L. '93-96'. After that era, I got out of it. And while I was out of it, video games became 'gaming' and it got serious. Flash forward to 2009, where I get my first GM job in Long Beach, about 45 minutes from my hometown of Chino, CA. About 3 months into it, I moved myself to Long Beach. All of a sudden I was in a new city, with no friends and just work to keep me busy. Eventually, I got pretty lonely, which is hard for a loner. But all of my friends were playing Call of Duty: Modern Warfare online. Hello XBox360! I bought myself one and Call of Duty and a new era of gaming was born for me. All of the sudden, I could stay up all night drinking and talking to my friends, whilst killing the crap out of other people I didn't know. It was great. It was a great game. It was so involving. I couldn't get enough. It was the only game I played. I was definitely not great at it but I didn't care, it was fun and the social aspect was just as engrossing as the gameplay. Soon, I was making friends all of the country and even Canada. I always had friends online to play with, so it was never ending. Most nights grew into the morning. I didn't get a lot of sleep.
